Delaying Brexit to June 30 would bring "serious legal and political risks", the European Commission warned Wednesday in an internal briefing note ahead of an EU summit.

Britain has asked to postpone Brexit to that date, but the commission, the EU's executive arm, urged leaders to choose instead between a short delay to May 23 or a longer one to "at least until end 2019".
